Donald Trump is an American business magnate and celebrity who served as the forty-fifth President of America until 2021. He is a celebrity known for his appearances on television and in movies such as The Apprentice and The Celebrity Apprentice, among many others. He is also famed for his prolific social media presence, specifically Twitter, and for his multiple business deals across the world. He has become a controversial figure because of some statements he has made regarding Mexico and the United States taking a harder stance on illegal immigration.
In early August, President Trump sent out a tweet asking “Who is at the top in the race to acquire the upcoming Presidential administration job?” In reaction to the news that Sarah Palin had been chosen to serve as the vice president position in the Trump administration. President Trump later told reporters that she had been on his “very shortlist” for the position.
Less than two months after taking office in January of this year, President Trump addressed the United States Senate from the first speech of his Presidency. In his speech, President Trump said that he was passing the torch to his successor at the White House, saying that he looks forward to working together with the next president to”usher the prosperity.” He referred to former President Obama as a “Good President” and commended him for his work in Obama’s first semester. He also took a shot at his chief competitor in the 2020 election, Mitt Romney, stating that the former Massachusetts Governor was a “scorched vet” whom no one ever liked to run against.
Two months later, President Trump hosted a major rally in Pennsylvania, addressing hundreds of fans. In his address, President Trump called upon each and every single U.S. taxpayer to”take charge” and help to shape the future of America. President Trump also repeatedly referred to the importance of the United States Supreme Court, asserting that the current vacancy on the U.S. Supreme Court is”not acceptable” and”ridiculous” because millions of Americans are out of work and struggling to make ends meet. The president went so far as to say he would have nominated Mitt Romney for the U.S. Supreme Court if it were not for the fact that President Obama chose someone who was a Massachusetts liberal-socialist.
The United States citizens, and lots of members of Congress, were impressed with President Trump’s performance in the second presidential election. According to exit polls, Trump received over double the support of Mitt Romney, who received about eight percent of the vote. If President Trump can figure out how to secure the legislative branch and keep the Senate in his control, it is very possible he will have a chance to enact as many of the policies of his campaign promise as you can. If the Democrats can somehow retain the Senate, they will have to manage a President Trump who will be even more willing to cooperate together on all policy issues. The resistance to the Trump agenda is likely to increase as congressmen and women learn just how much power and influence the Trump administration truly has in their hands.
President Trump is very likely to take the governorship after he is re-elected. His odds of passing any substantial laws or royal commissions are very good considering how much support he received from the voters during the election. He also took office at a time when the U.S. fiscal policy is controlled by the Obama administration, which is working to decrease the federal debt and increase taxes for the United States citizenry.
The president will also require the cooperation of congress to get his agenda passed and it’s doubtful he is going to be able to get his preferred law, called the Affordable Care Act, passed through the U.S. house of representatives or the U.S. Senate without the support of members of congress. President Trump made it quite clear he is not interested in negotiating a deal through congress, but rather he intends to”fight for” the policies he thinks are right for the American people. If the president could somehow find enough congressional Republicans on board with his schedule, the odds of getting the affordable care act passed in its current form are quite good. With the House and the Senate split into two parties, there’s little doubt that the president will have to work with both houses of congress to get this law passed.
One of the many places where President Trump can use his bully pulpit to promote his policies is on the importance of the Supreme Court. The Democrats are trying to use the court to challenge the validity of the president, while the Republicans are doing everything in their power to keep the government operating. The president has made it clear he doesn’t want to see the supreme court decreased, but it’s widely believed that he may use his bully pulpit to get the Republican congress to get behind his nominee, Merrick Garland. If the president can garner sufficient support from both Democrats or the Republicans for the nomination, he’ll have an ally at the court and possibly get the high court to eliminate the prospect of a divided verdict in favor of Mr. Garland. Whether that ends up happening or not, it is one of the many opportunities the president must use his bully pulpit to promote his policies and make America great again.
